Hi Folks,

 

I am looking for an option to link a folder to text written on a page.

Just like we can link text to related topics, can we link a text to a folder , that when we click the text it hits the folder.

If you could link to folders, the hackers of the world would be delighted.

See below. Perhaps you will have luck bending Adobe's ear about this security flaw in 2020.

Worked for me in RoboHelp 2020 - at least a link to a share drive folder when launched from Internet Explorer (in Edge/Chrome it opens the index of the share drive). Hyperlink was simply full file path using the "//file" link. Doesn't seem to work in 2017.

 

Apparently hackers are going to love RoboHelp 2020....

In the output? It opened the folder so the user could access the folder contents?

  1. I haven't tested but you are saying that in 2020 a linked to a shared folder works and opens the folder so that the user can access the contents and use the files, correct?
  2. Have you tested this on your intranet when the user does not have permissions to share that folder? Would you agree that is when it would become a security flaw?
  3. Have you installed the help to somewhere publicly accessible to see what happens there?

 

I will take this up with Adobe once you let me know what you have found.
